Wolves midfielder Dave Edwards says the players do not feel under pressure going into a run of tough away games.They are at Chelsea on Saturday, with their next three away matches at Spurs, Manchester United and Liverpool. [LNB]"All the pressure's on the big teams," Edwards told BBC WM. "If we lose the games, everyone says we were never going to win it anyway. [LNB]"So there's no pressure on us really, and hopefully we can relax and play the football which everyone knows we can." [LNB]Edwards is back with the Wolves squad after starring in Wales' 3-0 win over Scotland, in which he scored the opening goal with a stunning volley and he can see similarities between the two squads.[LNB] We should really take nine points from the next three away games Wolves' Dave Edwards tries to be positive ahead of trips to Chelsea, Spurs and Manchester United He said: "[Wolves are] very similar to Wales, with a young squad full of enthusiasm. I think that's only going to help us in our bid to stay in the Premier League. [LNB]"We all know it's going to be tough, but I don't really think our position in the league at the moment tells the true story of how we've been playing. It's just been unfortunate really, but we need to start getting some points on the table." [LNB]"It's a great league, best league in the world, and so exciting going into every game. It hasn't come as a surprise to me that we get punished for little mistakes, because the quality in that league is so much more than the Championship. [LNB]"I think we've been playing well enough to have more points on the table, but it's a brutal league, and if you don't take your chances and you make mistakes then you will get punished, so we need to convert the good performances into points."[LNB] [LNB][LNB] Wolves' upcoming fixture list looks particularly brutal, with their next three away games against sides in the top four, as well as a crucial home derby against Birmingham. [LNB]Edwards joked: "We should really take nine points from the next three away games. No, it'll be tough, everyone knows that, we're not expected to win any of them games. [LNB]"So there's no pressure on us really, we can hopefully go out there and cause an upset by having no fear and not giving them the respect which they maybe deserve. We must go there and make sure we're on our game, and that we're not playing within ourselves because of the opposition."
